Argentina’s Pope Francis heralds a new era for Latin America | North and South America | Scoop.it

South America, a continent known to many Americans largely for roiling politics, economic turmoil and good beaches, now finds itself in possession of the global image trifecta: a World Cup (in 2014), a Summer Olympics (2016) and a new pope (Francis).

 

When the College of Cardinals decided to go to the Western Hemisphere for a successor to Pope Benedict XVI, they didn’t choose the archbishops of Boston or New York or a cardinal from Quebec. They tapped the archbishop of Buenos Aires, Cardinal Jorge Bergoglio.
